HCMC – The local stock market saw selling pressure piling up on November 9 but low-cost air carrier VJC still managed to keep the VN-Index in the positive territory.

VJC closed with a 0.86% rise at VND117,200 a share on matching volume of over 1.5 million shares, in which foreigners net bought nearly 369,000 shares. In the recent five sessions, the carrier saw four rising sessions and one session of sideways moving.

In contrast, many VN30 stocks made negative contributions to the market, resulting in a fractional rise of 0.08% of the VN-Index to close at 860.4.

Construction firm ROS was the biggest laggard, tumbling 6.8% at VND174,200 a share while Vietnam’s top brewery firm SAB lost 1.2% at VND278,100 per share. The two giants fell for the second and third straight session respectively.
